We investigate the peculiarities of the “overshoot” phenomena in the transverse Hall resistance Rxy in . Near the low magnetic-field end of the quantum Hall effect plateaus, when the filling factor ν approaches an integer i, Rxy overshoots the normal plateau value . However, if magnetic field B increases further, Rxy decreases to its normal value. It is shown that in the investigated sample n-, overshoots exist for almost all ν. Existence of overshoot in Rxy observed in different materials and for different ν, where splitting of the adjacent Landau bands has different character, hints at the common origin of this effect. Comparison of the experimental curves for and with and without overshoot showed that this effect exists in the whole interval between plateaus, not only in the region where Rxy exceeds the normal plateau value.
